Some words on the piece:

When you die, you don’t disappear: or so it says the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Your consciousness continues its way, moving on to another state known as “intermediate state” between your past life and the next one: your reincarnation.
One might be easily impressed, even overwhelmed by the complex imaginary found within the origins and many subsequent branches of the Buddhist texts, those same texts that arrived to the western world as The Tibetan Book of The Dead

The attention to nuances is maybe the main feature of the Buddhist philosophy, especially in comparison with other western religions. Buddhism is not about radical contrasts: when we die, why should we have to be judged and be sent to either paradise or hell without other intermediate options? Why should everything be either black or white, win or lose, peace or guilt? The Tibetan Book Of The Dead is a brilliant way of proving this wrong.

lacabezaenlasnubes' everlasting illustration inspired by the reading of Tibetan Book Of The Dead depicts that exact moment where one remains between the two lives: the past one and the next. Our singular, particular life against the Universe… Are those rings in the piece the karmic wheel? We might find an answer while reading The Tibetan Book Of The Dead. Or maybe the answer resides within ourselves and shall be revealed at the end of our current life (among many others we’ve lived and those yet to come).
